Squishmallows are now making beds for pets and my dog is in heaven - review

 Here’s what my dog thought of the Squishmallows pet bed

As a mum of two kids (aged 11 and six ) I'm more than familiar with Squishmallows toys - those super soft and cuddly plush toys that just demand to be hugged. We have several at home and we're big fans. You've probably heard of them too. But did you know that Squishmallows are now making beds for pets?

When I heard this news, I just had to get one for my dog Sancho. Anyone who knows me will contest that he is absolutely spoiled, (he has his own Instagram, several outfits, and gets birthday and Christmas presents) and I’m always on the lookout for new pet products. Here’s my honest review…

There are several different cute designs and sizes available - and more on that below, but my kids pìcked out the frog design because they thought it was the cutest. We ordered the 30-inch design, which is the largest - because although Sancho is a small dog - a pug - he loves to stretch out horizontally when he sleeps, and at some point we want to get him a little brother or sister that he can snuggle with. You can buy from Amazon, and Pets at Home  also stock the beds - which will be on offer from March 27-April 10 at 25% off.

First impressions of the Squishmallows pet bed

The Squishmallows bed arrived and straight out of the box, Sancho and me both were delighted with it. It’s super soft - made of exactly the same material and stuffing as the regular Squishmallows toys, and the quality is just really good. The stitching on the eyes, cheeks and mouth of the frog is machine-finished to a great standard and still all looks brand new, two months after receiving it.

The really great thing about the Squishmallows bed is that the centre part has plenty of lining, so it’s super comfy. Sancho loves to sleep with his head resting on the raised side of the bed, and he snuggles his face into the frog’s eye. I’m glad we got the large size for him - the smaller would have fitted fine, but he loves having the extra room, and there’ll be space for his little brother or sister too when we add to the family. Have a look at the video below to see him testing it out:

What sizes are Squishmallows pet beds available in?

There are currently four different designs available - Octopus, frog, pineapple and shark - and there are three different sizes in each design. You can choose between 20 inches, 24 inches and 30 inches. The smallest size is good for cats and very small dogs like chihuahuas while the bigger sizes are good for small to medium-sized dogs, or multiple pets that like to snuggle together in the same bed. Currently, there’s no size for larger or extra-large dogs. If Squishmallows decide to extend the range, I will of course come back to update this article with the news!

What makes the Squishmallows pet beds different from other beds for dogs and cats?

I’ve owned dogs all my life and I’ve never seen a bed as soft and comfy as this. It’s literally like sleeping on a Squishmallows plush toy! Plus I’ve never seen beds as cute - the colourful designs are a real talking point, and anyone who’s come over to visit has commented on it and asked where we got it. It would make an absolutely fab present for anyone who has a dog or a cat, and it’s swiftly become my dog’s favourite place for snoozing. I’m considering getting another one for upstairs, just so I don’t have to keep carrying it up and down to keep Sancho happy!

Squishmallows pet bed pros and cons

  • Only four designs currently available in the UK

Squishmallows pet toys

If the best isn't enough to satisfy your Squishmallows addiction - the brand also launched a range of pet toys, which are available at Pets at Home. These look adorable, and I've ordered some to review, so bookmark this page because you can be assured I'll be back to update you. Since these are a new launch, thee's not a lot of information available currently... One shopper did say they have an aggressive biter, so the toys didn't last long - so you might want to bear that in mind! I'll be back to give mine (and Sancho's) honest review as soon as the toys arrive!

Why you should trust me:

Aside from the fact that I’ve been reviewing products as part of the HELLO! Shopping team for the past three years, I’ve been a lifelong dog owner and have tried every dog bed going. I certainly wouldn’t recommend something unless it gets the seal of approval from my beloved dog Sancho.
